Pros: Everything from the view to the 2 shower rinsers they have on the premise! Location location location! Next to everything! And don't worry if you forgot something, there is a Wal-Mart close by! Their shower head has great water pressure and also has some body wash and shampoo dispensers! Only con is that the breakfast is only continental. Other...

This is an older hotel but well kept. Plenty of room for 3-4 people. The lobby always smelled so good and the staff was nice. Lobby was nicely decorated and updated. The rooms could use a little update here and there but over all we really liked this place, especially waking up to the ocean next to you. Very close...

This is an older property but it is right on the beach. The rooms face the beach and have a small kitchenette and balcony. There is a nice heated pool. A very basic continental breakfast is included. The staff were friendly and helpful. Perfect for a short visit to the beach.

Great location and staff was amazing. If we had an issue with the room, it was promptly taken care of. Close to attractions and restaurants. Exterior and common areas on ground floor were very nice and updated. I would recommend updating the rooms especially bathrooms and also replacing and/or removing carpet altogether.

Took a quick Anniversary trip and the room was very clean, staff was extremely friendly! Heated pool in the winter and on the beach! It is very close to the small pier, so if you like to fish that is very convenient. Breakfast was included, nothing fancy, but it's good.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor for our 28th anniversary getaway. It is an older hotel that is very convenient to the beach. The pool is heated in the winter months. They play music out by the pool starting at 7am. Did not like that. We were on the second floor directly above the music. The kitchenette is very...
